Getting From Milan (Malpensa Airport) to Venezia Santa Lucia


We are planning a trip to Venice 29May to 3rd of June.

We will be flying to Milan, will be reaching at 10am and from there we want to go to Venice.

Is there a direct train from Milan (Malpensa Airport) to Venezia Santa Lucia ???

How much will the train ticket cost? And how much time will it take to reach Venice.

We will be travelling wit a 3 yr old, so is it going to be difficult traveling from Milan airport to Venice?

There is no direct train, you must change at Milano Centrale train station.

Best travel time: a little less than four hours.

It's advisable to buy immediately your ticket Milano Centrale - Venice Saint Lucia (www.trenitalia.com, then click on British flag) to take advantage of discounts (provide a wide margin, for risk of flight delay). The ticket Malpensa - Milano Centrale (regional train) can be purchased at the airport, there is no discount for advance booking; in any case it cannot be bought through the internet with greater advance than a week.

As you will be travelling on 29 May, there is now no point in buying in advance, as almost all of the discounted tickets have already sold out.

In any case, discounted tickets are worthless if you miss your train. You would do best to buy your tickets all the way from Malpensa to Venice at the train station at Malpensa. The ticket from Malpensa to Milan Central must be validated before you get on the train by time-stamping it in a machine at the station.
